After playing around with colour over the last few weeks ,I am back in my all black today and I must say it
does feel good.Black is my go to when nothing else seems right, somehow for me it always works.
The secret to wearing all black for me is to mix up different materials and shapes and to add accessories for
contrast and always a bright,usually red, lipstick.
A bright blue mural painted on a hoarding surrounding a building site provides a great contrast to
my blacks. Behind the hoarding, is the redevelopment of old silos that are to become part of a luxury
hotel complex. I am very much in favour of the reuse of old buildings for an entirely new purpose.
Personal redevelopment is an ongoing process , both inwardly and outwardly, and involves really getting to know all aspects of ourselves, both strengths and weaknesses. From my own perspective, the redevelopment is a long way from complete.
I am finding as time passes , and as this journey called life unfolds , ideas change and a renewal of
sorts starts to take place.I am enjoying the learning process and delight in experiencing the new.
The joy of family and friends (both old and new) is indeed very much a part of this journey.
Today's black includes my skort from Japanese designers Moyuru, seen several times previously,
a black leather jacket from New Zealand by Caroline Moore, a black cami and my spotty yellow
and black gloves and not forgetting my hat by Ted Baker.
